Powerbuilder 12.5 - Oracle 11g Connecting Issue

Powerbuilder 12.5 - Oracle 11g Connecting Issue

Powerbuilder 12.5 - Oracle 11g Connecting Issue

I have installed oracle 11g Release 2 , The installation went successfully without any errors and I have created listeners and created new user with grants, also I have imported dump file. But when I am trying to connect through powerbuilder database painter, it says 'Oracle library OCI.dll could not be loaded.'. Is there any drivers which needs to be installed manually apart from the oracle installation. Where can I get those drivers. ?. Please advice me.

Note: When I am trying to connect oracle outside powerbuilder, then it's ok. Connection successful.

Operating System: Windows 7 64 bit - X64.

Also, I have downloaded the correct installation files from the oracle site. i.e., oracle 11g for windows 64bit.

Please help me to find out the solution for this.

Which drivers did you install when you installed Powerbuilder?

oci.dll belongs to Oracle.

I think you might have a conflict in having installed different versions of Oracle at the same time.
If possible, uninstall all oracle clients you might have, clean registry with ccleaner for example and reinstall your oracle client.

Hope it helps.
